In 2002, while studying at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, Steven Martinez and Boris Dedoff began an artistic collaboration that resulted in the music of “Devious.”

Atlantica, which means “a state of mind” is the title of the groups debut CD, set for release late 2005. Devious gave Martinez' a vehicle to express his lyrics through Boris' electronic beats and sample manipulations. After only a few sessions together, the first songs began to surface, including the new single "Dreamstate", and the surrealistic instrumental "Atlantica".

Martinez, a 2001 K-state graduate and an outstanding graphic designer and photographer, was also developing the band's conceptual image, which is now an integral part of the band. Martinez’ lyrics and imagery has been influenced by some of his favorite bands which include: Duran Duran, Oasis, Blur, Björk, Depeche Mode, Orgy and the Beatles.

Dedoff, a native Paraguayan of Russian descent and also a proud K-stater, had been experimenting with electronic music for several years and in various projects, and his influences include artists like Blur, Radiohead, Orbital, Nine Inch Nails, Liam Howlett of The Prodigy, the Future Sound of London, UNKLE, the Chemical Brothers and of course Oasis.

After Dedoff’s graduation in December 2002, "Devious" hibernated for two years. During this period, Boris developed his production techniques and he and wife Sylvia had a baby. Meanwhile, Steven wrote and crafted the songs that would become the eleven tracks of the band's debut album. In 2004, the band started working on the album again, and now "Atlantica" is scheduled for release in late 2005 through Infinitum Records. "Dreamstate" is the first single, and it will be released in June 2005.

The band's new sounds are fresh, lively and have a much tighter sound than the original demos recorded in 2002. This is the result of growth within the group and by the amazing song arrangements Dedoff has created for the “Devious” sound.

Devious has waited long and is ready to take on the world. The question is: is the world ready for Devious?
